Trump Makes Fresh Attempt to Resolve Saudi, Qatar Feud
The U.S. is now focusing on a dispute over airline flight rights in trying to mend a broader rift that has split U.S. allies in the Gulf and set back U.S. efforts to contain Iran
To get around a ban on flying over its Gulf neighbors, national carrier Qatar Airways now sometimes flies over Iran instead.

The Trump administration is taking a new tack in trying to resolve a three-year-old feud between Qatar and its Gulf neighbors by pressing Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to halt their bans on Qatari airlines flying over their countries, according to U.S. and Gulf officials.
Repeated attempts to end the feud, which enters its fourth year on Friday, have broken down. And the latest effort faces strong resistance from Saudi Arabia, frustrating U.S. hopes of resolving a rift that has complicated its efforts to contain Iran, one of its main objectives in the Middle East.
